Brie's Corner

Supervillain book reviewer. Lover of secret pains and purple proses. I review over at Romance Around the Corner.

Arranged - Catherine McKenzie I liked it. A standard chick-lit story with a heroine that's not as annoying as the heroines in the sub-genre tend to be. The premise requires a considerable amount of suspension of disbelief, especially when you get to the big revelation. The romance felt off most of the book, which makes sense given how things end up developing. But I wonder if it was the author's intention or just poor execution. Maybe a bit of both. We don't really know anything about the love interest, not even at the end, but again, it works with the plot. Recommended to fans of chick-lit and of contemporary romance that heavily focus on the heroine. As long as you don't mind that the heroine's happiness relies exclusively on her success finding a husband.
